  • Building a Reliable VFD System (.pdf)
    A Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) regulates the speed of a 3-phase AC electric motor by controlling the frequency and voltage of the power it delivers to the motor. Today, these devices (also known as Adjustable Speed Drives or Variable Speed Drives) are becoming prevalent in a wide range
  • Interpreting IEEE Std 519 and Meeting its Harmonic Limits in VFD Applications (.pdf)
    IEEE Std 519 was first introduced in 1981 to provide direction on dealing with harmonics introduced by static power converters and other nonlinear loads so that power quality problems could be averted. It is being applied by consulting engineers and enforced by Utilities more frequently in recent
  • Cable Solutions for Servo and Variable Frequency Drives
    . This article discusses different drive system problems, such as electromagnetic interference, electrical surge and leakage. It shows how shielded motor supply cables perform in electromagnetic compatibility tests, and how cable design and materials provide solutions to VFD problems. U 1. Cable Solutions
  • How VFDs Save Energy
    (FLA). This means that the electrical power that the motor is drawing is: Pout = 3 x 230V x 115A x 0.86 = 39.4kW. Because the VFD is a power converter, this means that the input current is (assuming a 0.89 input power factor from a 3% line impedance): Iin = (39.4kW) / ( 3 x 460V x 0.89) = 55.6A
  • Medical Device Link .
    Albert Smith, vice president, Noritake Company, Inc. The characteristics of vacuum fluorescent display (VFD) technology include high brightness, wide viewing angle, wide temperature range, and relatively low cost, making it particularly appropriate for medical uses. The high brightness and wide
  • Variable Speed Drives and Centrifuges for Zone 1 Hazardous Areas (.pdf)
    Using a variable frequency drive (VFD) provides a standard solution to get the top performance of machines in many applications in the process industry. Today, there is no solution to install frequency converters inside the hazardous area. This limits the functionality and the ability for a compact
  • Understanding Electronic Motor Drives
    . For instance, take a simple application of a fixed-speed motor driving a fan. Replacing a three-phase motor starter with variablefrequency drive (VFD) permits the fan to operate at variable speeds. One benefit is energy savings,
  • The Ever Shrinking Power Supply
    as 130 W. It. results in improved efficiency because, as diode losses depend on I x VFD (where VFD is the diode forward volt drop), paralleling. diodes does not reduce dissipation; therefore large diodes are needed at high currents. Conversely, MOSFET losses depend on. I2 x Rdson (where Rdson
